Let us discuss Samachan's favorite series!

In recent news,
Reflection BD is out (with shitsubs).
Innocents has been fully translated.
Vivid chapter 89 has been translated.

As for Reflection.
The henshin and combat felt very un-mechanical. I love henshin scenes and this one had some nice angles but had nothing on the past movies with all the screws and moving parts. Considering they are using more mechanical designs from Force, I was very disappointed by this.
But what hurt most of all was how shafted the Intelligent Devices were. Half the movie they fought with substitute weapons, which made me anxious for a huge moment when everyone gets their devices back. But that moment just passes by. They barely talk to their IDs at all, Graf Eisen didn't speak until his last attack (so I wasn't even sure it was him), and Klarwind didn't have a single line. But worst of all was best boy Bardiche. Fate has an entire speech while obtaining Bardiche about how "she's never been alone", and thinks of all her friends and family, but never fucking ONCE mentions bardiche during so. She just grabs him and starts fighting again, completely ignoring her partner and one of the best characters. All they needed was "Isn't that right, Bardiche?" followed by 「Yes Sir.」before the attack and I would have a much more positive view of the movie.

But there was some enjoyable action, like that shot of Nanoha using the cable.
My personal highlight of the movie surprisingly ended up being Levi, whom I had no idea what to expect personality-wise. She caught me off-guard and was tons of fun. I look forward to seeing more of her in Detonation.

The only thing I remember about Nanoha is Starlight Breaker and Vivid having Nanoha grow up and be really hot.

Starlight Breaker is a great thing to remember.
So you watched season 1 or have you just seen a video? Because As (season 2) is generally considered the absolute high point of the franchise, so if you've already seen season 1 you should really give it a try too.
Personally I like season 1 a lot, Shinbou's weird directing is fun (he only did season 1) and I enjoy the slower monster-of-the-week mahou shoujo episodes. But I can see why someone would have trouble getting into it, especially if it's the future seasons they're interested in, which is really the downside of a franchise that changes genres every other entry.

I'll make you a webm in a second.

The two movies are generally inferior since they cut so much, but still good to watch as flashy action movies if you're into the series. Some people do prefer Movie 1 since it cuts down the slower Season 1, but those people are wrong.

Getting into CCS for the first time with the new sequel, I'm rather weirded out by how underpowered she is. She only recently became able to fly, and her chief ability seems to be walking up to a card and asking it nicely to surrender.

I agree completely, but as a casual Nanoha fan this is a point I rarely try to argue. I was however shocked to find out that Reflection, which suffers from similar issues, is not a self-contained story. I can understand that a movie imposes severe time restrictions, and furthermore that if you're making a movie as an alternate version of a TV anime it makes sense to put the focus on different aspects of it rather than try to recreate the original. But neither of those is the case with Reflection.

I suppose the retort is obvious: if I prefer a slower pace and a focus on characters rather than flashy action, I should go read the manga. As a casual fan, this is all I deserve. Hey, I got to see loli Nanoha again and everyone managed not to enter a martial arts tournament for over an hour straight! We're happy, right? I'm happy.

To be fair, Clear Card is pretty weird; Sakura seems to lose not only her old cards, but a good chunk of her brain, as well. And yeah, the new cards barely even fight back.
The original series showed off her growth a lot more, and by the end of it she was in fact fairly broken. But still, even though her latent magical potential is great, she can't really use it without cards.

What do you mean similar issues? Reflection doesn't cut down anything, it's an original story. Just with some borrowed game characters.
>I should go read the manga
The Reflection manga is supplemental and only has a few chapters, so no one will tell you that.

I mean how it emphasizes battle scenes at the expense of everything else.

On one hand, with characters, although a decent standard is met (the two sisters have some good scenes that show off their relationship, and there is even a much welcome, if a bit shallow, scene with Nanoha and Alisa), I would certainly appreciate more time devoted to depicting their personalities and relationships. The amusement park provided an excellent chance to show them just having fun. I'd also have liked more downtime between battles - maybe a bathtime conversation after a defeat where they each try to cope with it?

On the other hand, the plot rushes forward clumsily at times. That scene where the girls are shown a seemingly irrelevant inanimate object just so the viewer will know about it is a tad too obvious. The betrayal scene, too, could use some more subtlety.

Back to my main point, these are all tradeoffs and choices that I understand made sense for the previous movies, but when planning a multi-movie story that's not an alternate version to an existing anime, I'm a bit disappointed that they went with this particular recipe. The result is good, just not the one I'd have liked best.

As for that thing about the manga, as you can imagine I was taking a blind guess at what the source material was. I could have looked it up, but sometimes I prefer to make my ignorance obvious so others can gauge how much credibility my posts deserve.

Good subs are up for Reflection!

Ah I see. They probably feel that at this point they have established the movies as action-oriented and just don't want to disappoint people who are expecting more of that. I would prefer more character focus too, those giant monster servants were a waste of space.
I knew of course it was going to be two movies, but I expected them to be two somewhat separate complete plots. Like the first being more about the sisters and the second being more about Yuri and the Materials for instance. So I was surprised when it ended during a big moment.

No the movie continuity is separate, but in Reflection we are introduced to a younger version of a character who was previously only in StrikerS, so it's not being ignored.
